With incontinence, an increasingly common problem, the number of people wearing adult diapers is on the rise. Many people find wearing diapers embarrassing since they constantly think that people around them can tell that they are wearing them. However, this is not an accurate perception, as many incontinence products in the market make it easy and convenient to hide your urinary incontinence. With proper planning, you can buy, wear, and dispose of your adult diapers discreetly.
Here is how to hide your adult diaper and keep your dignity intact
Use the right type of incontinence products
If you want to keep your diapers discreet, you need to be careful with your selection of products. If disposable diapers seem too bulky and make you uncomfortable when you try them out in the mirror, consider switching to less bulky disposables.
One of the best advice on how to hide your adult diaper is to talk to your doctor and ask them to make a recommendation of a brand. A good brand is one that is strong enough for your condition, yet does not make you embarrassed and uncomfortable.
Plan well before buying
When buying, diapers do your research beforehand, so that you know what brand you are going to purchase. Do not go into a store and grab anything on the shelf as this may make you even more nervous on checkout, as you do not know if you have the right product.
If you buy your diapers from the local store, act as if buying diapers is a normal thing. Most of the time the checkout cashier does not care what you are buying. If you buy the diapers online, research companies that offer discreet shipping (ship goods in a plain unmarked box).
How to hide your adult diaper with clothing
Appropriate clothing can go a long way to hide the fact that you are wearing adult diapers. Any tight fitting clothes that would likely show regular underwear are sure to make your adult diaper show even more. Instead, opt for loose-fitting clothes such as high-waist pants. Clothing with dark colors and bold designs are helpful in disguising the bulk of a diaper, and concealing accidental wet spots.
Have a plan for discreet disposal
While it is impossible to plan for every scenario, proper planning for disposal eventualities can save you a lot of embarrassment. Using guards or pads can be useful in concealing adult diapers, as they are easy to conceal.
However, the most efficient way of planning for disposal is having an awareness of the changing areas, restrooms, trashcans, and dumpsters available in places you will be visiting. If these are not close at hand, consider having a stock of scented disposal bags or brown paper bags, which you can quickly dispose of without attracting much attention.
